Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 for Windows 10 PCs unveiled

Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 850 is a processor built with laptops in mind

Showing dedication to the category of always-connected PCs, chipset maker Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 850, a dedicated platform for Windows 10 PCs. Improved upon the Snapdragon 835, which debuted in notebooks last here, there are several benefits of running a Snapdragon 850 in a laptop, which all necessary details highlighted right here.

The Snapdragon X20 modem can now reach speeds of 1.2 Gbps, and Qualcomm will be leveraging the AI capabilities of their Hexagon DSP a lot more with the new platform. Qualcomm also claims its next generation PCs will offer 20% or faster LTE modem speeds.

Qualcomm is focused on expanding its chipset business and along with making chips for mobile phones, the company is also making chips for the Internet of Things devices, VR headset, among others.

The Snapdragon 850 supports UltraHD Premium 4K video playback and capture, though the integration of a 4K-capable camera on these systems seems a bit unlikely.

The chip is supposed to drive a new generation of Windows devices on Snapdragon chipset, made by Qualcomm's numerous partners. The chip is the result of a join effort between Qualcomm and Samsung. That means virtual surround sound via the 3.5mm jack or USB Type-C audio.

Support for 64-bit Microsoft Edge web browser will be provided after the Windows 10 April 2018 Creators Update, along with compatibility to play HDR videos, run legacy apps, and listen to Hi-Fi audio. It doesn't completely rewrite the current situation, and I expect we will still find the improved performance to be lacking when compared to Intel, especially when software emulation is utilized. "This collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies and their Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform will allow us to provide always on, always connected mobile computing experiences for our customers".

Qualcomm is yet to spill the beans on new hardware, but it has revealed that Samsung will be releasing a Snapdragon 850-powered device later this year.
